Registrations were closed for a long time because of forum spam, but I have re-opened them on a trial basis.

The forum administrator (chris dot waigl at gmail dot com) reserves the right to request users to plausibly demonstrate that they are real people with an interest in the topic of eggcorns. Otherwise they may be removed with no further justification. Likewise, accounts that have not been used for posting may be removed.

Thanks for your understanding.

My 3-year old granddaughter understood ‘yesterday’ as ‘lasterday’. This seemed so reasonable that the whole family used if for two years. Alas, she has now converted to ‘yesterday’ and we feel a sense of loss.

Re: lasterday

Cute. The pronunciation similarity seems a bit of a stretch for eggcornicity, but a web search reveals that “lasterday” is in fairly common use, typically to mean not yesterday, but some indeterminate time before yesterday.
